Recent Snowshoe reviews
"We stayed there for three nights with a few couples and toddlers. The house was perfect for all of us! The shuttle service to the slopes was really convenient and there within 5 minutes after calling. The views were breathtaking and the owner went above and beyond to ensure our visit went smoothly."Guest: Elizabeth T. Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: February 20, 2014View listing

"Greatly enjoyed my recent stay here! I was really pleasantly surprised at how nice this place was. The interior has been renovated and the decor is as modern and updated as any space you'll see at more "upscale" lodging at Snowshoe, e.g. Allegheny Springs. The sliding glass door (to a small balcony) and window allow ample light and make the space very bright. Appliances are all modern and function well. Flat panel TV, dishwasher, separate bedroom, and full-size fridge are some things you won't find at many pricier rooms like at the Rimfire and Expedition Station (I've stayed at them all). And this is truly ski-in/out; you walk down a couple of hallways and out an exterior door and you're right there at the Ballhooter express lift. In this regard it's among the most convenient condo properties at Snowshoe. It's also right there in the middle of the main Village, so after a long day of skiing you can walk a short distance and be right there in the midst of all the dining and shopping options. Its east-facing location means you won't have to put up with the loud revelers exiting the bars and spilling into the Village plaza late at night. The view from the balcony is wonderful, with expansive views of the trails and lake. Finally, this property has its own front desk staff, unlike many others, and that affords guests easy access to services and assistance if needed. It also undoubtedly keeps rowdy guests on their best behavior; partyers were not an issue during my stay, though you'll always have inconsiderate folks not using their quiet voice while walking past your room at 3am. The bottom line is that this is easily the best value I have found for a Village condo property and I very much hope to stay here again someday."Guest: John B.

"Had a great vacation with my two daughters. Comfortable room. All the necessary amenities. Even a calling card to make outgoing phone calls. No cell service. It was great to get away from email and contact and focus on ourselves and skiing. Location awesome. Thirst? Hungry? Right by lift. easy in...easy out. great for talking breaks, getting snacks, and drinks. Village nearby. ( shortcut through the snow!) easy bus transfer to night skiing at silver creek. Will be 1st choice when we return!"Guest: Jeffrey R. Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: February 3, 2014View listing
